355ml can. Given to me by someone who "heard I like 'crazy' beer". Rating this as an English IPA. I should've known better when he said, "They were giving it out... told me to take as many as I wanted!"
A - Clear, pale, fizzy. Looks light an American Macro with half as much color. Ugly.
S - Grainy adjuncts, slight hop aroma. Not "bash-you-in-the-face" hops, just... enough to let you know it's beer.
T - Sweet, light. May as well be macro swill, but has one slight aspect on the finish that lets you know it's not. Not necessarily offensive, but not at ALL complex. Just... boring.
M - Sparkling water. Seriously. There's no body whatsoever.
D - It's sessionable, and easy to drink... just not ANYTHING I'd ever go out of my way for. If it's this or Budweiser, I'm choosing this. That's about the only way I'd order one.
Not a good example of the style. Pass on this unless you're looking for an easy drinker. I'm dumping it :(
